Dylan Groenewegen has ended his cycling season in style with the victory in the Tacx Pro Classic. The sprinter of Team Jumbo-Visma was the first to cross the line after a perfect lead out by his teammates. It meant his fifteenth win this year and his fiftieth victory as a professional cyclist.
A leading group was caught well before the finish by Team Jumbo-Visma and Deceuninck-QuickStep. Groenewegen completed the teamwork in the best possible way and thereby gave his team the 51st victory of the season.
“It was a cold day with a lot of rain”, Groenewegen said. “There was not too much wind, so there was a good chance for a sprint. We were very motivated to win here and we showed that. I’m going to celebrate this tonight.”
The laureate continued: “We did what we had to do the entire race. In the last two corners I had Timo and Mike in front of me. I went a little late, but in the end I managed to do well. When I’m in shape and up to speed, it’s hard to beat me. I can look back on a good season and I am happy that I was able to finish this season with a victory. The fact that I am the rider with the most UCI victories this season is nice, even if they are just statistics.”
